The 9th Annual Accra International Marathon (AIM) successfully passed into history on the last Sunday in September with about 42 nations represented on AIM day. Of the nearly 500 registrations, about 40% were Ghanaians; the top 8 foreign countries were, in descending order:
USA (44); Germany (26); Japan (18); India (17); France & Nigeria (13 each); Philippines (12) and UK (10).
Veteran corporate participants, Accu-Computers, Barry Callebaut, Mitsui-Osk Lines (MOL), PwC, Metropolitan Insurance, and Labadi Beach Hotel, were joined by AIM newcomers Bouygues Construction, Godrej, and Red Sea Housing.
A festive and fun atmosphere prevailed on the course and especially at the finish line, where MC Kafui Dey, assisted by Reggie Spice, made sure that participants and spectators alike were entertained and appreciated.
The enduring theme of this popular leisure, sporting event is AIMing to Keep Africa Alive! Raising funds to support selected Charity Partners gives valuable meaning to this motto, and, with the help of several participants, organizers raised and donated over GHS35,000 (about $10,000) to charities in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the 3 worst affected Ebola countries in our sub-region, as well as to Ghana’s own Planetarium Science Centre.
Special thanks to media sponsors, Starr FM of the EIB Network and eTV of Global Media Alliance, as well as to: our volunteer medical team, massage therapists of GAMMT and Rima Theratouch, the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Cycling Association, the Ashesi Civic Engagement Club, and the numerous other public-spirited individuals whose support contributes immensely to our fitness and to the success of the AIM.
We applaud the growing numbers of AIMers—runners, joggers, and walkers whose commitment to their personal fitness helps to improve national productivity. In support of our valued active lifestyle seekers, the 10th Annual AIM will be held on 30 October 2016. Mark your calendars now and prepare to join in the fitness fun lifestyle.
